The history of the architecture of Solar das Arcas (Property of Public Interest) is extremely rich. Built between the 17th and 18th centuries, the mansion was designed by Nicolau Nasoni to be the noble hall of the Admiral Manuel Pessanha. It is still owned by the Pessanha family and is open to the public in the form of a magnificent rural tourism farm. Solar das Arcas stands out, especially, for the charm of the construction. The halls, the private chapel, the open-air swimming pool, the traditional kitchens and the very characteristic decoration can please any observer.
